It’s been a tough week in the world of horse racing. Firstly, the dreadful news about Freddy Tylicki who is very sadly paralysed from the waist down. I just can’t imagine how that news was broke to Freddy and how he must be feeling? One can only wish him all the best.
A charity fund has been setup for Freddy, please donate no matter how small, it's times like this when everybody must pitch in and help. Follow the below link:
Sunday night, further bad news, the Willie Mullins trained horse, Vautour had to be put down after being found in his field with a broken foreleg. In my opinion he was the best national hunt horse in training. All the training, jumping and racing, and Vautour breaks a leg when out in the field when doing nothing.
The last bit of bad news was the headlines in certain newspapers yesterday where 3 jockeys were named. I hope it’s just another kiss and tell, pay me the money story that we’ve seen in the past few years.
We have 3 horses all ready to run but the dry weather is holding things up. Quick ground in the 2nd week of November is crazy, we have no choice but to hold fire.
When the wet stuff does arrive we’ll see maximum size fields for weeks as hundreds of horses up and down the country are waiting for the soft ground. The racing even at a lower level will be hugely competitive.
